In the crowd of sequels and reboots, one sequel that everyone is waiting for with bated breath is Aankhen 2. As the title aptly suggests, the movie is a sequel to the 2002 heist drama Aankhen, starring Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar, Arjun Rampal, Sushmita Sen and Paresh Rawal. It was one of the most successful films of the year it released in.
The sequel has been in the talks for a long time now. However, due to one reason or the other, it could never take off in the past. But now, filmmaker Anees Bazmee has confirmed that the script of the sequel is almost ready and that Amitabh Bachchan will return to headline the project.

Talking about the movie, Bazmee said, “Aankhen (2) script is ready and we are trying. We are trying something. My producers are doing something about it. We have worked a lot on the script; some little work is still pending. We have also signed Amit ji (Amitabh Bachchan), and we will see what we can do about the remaining star cast. We will make that film.”
Meanwhile, Big B is busy with Dharma Productions’ Brahmastra, which is somehow taking a lot of time in production. The high-profile movie also stars Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Mouni Roy in important roles. Ayan Mukerji is calling the shots for it.
Aside from Brahmastra and Aankhen 2, Amitabh Bachchan has several other exciting projects in his pocket, including Chehre, Gulabo Sitabo and Jhund. He has also done a special cameo in the much-awaited multilingual historical drama Sye Raa Namsimha Reddy, which hits the marquee on 2nd October.
Anees Bazmee, on the other hand, is busy with his upcoming comic-caper Pagalpanti. Starring John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Pulkit Samrat, Ileana D’Cruz, Kriti Kharbanda and Urvashi Rautela, the movie is scheduled to roll into theatres on 22nd November, 2019.
